Re: radial palsy?

Dave, rather than internet/motorcycle forums, run this buy a real doctor or at least a physical therapist. Never had the wrist-drop thing. But...a few years ago 2008 I had a stroke that trashed my entire left side. Even after the docs and PT folks got me somewhat mobile on a quad cane I had "foot-d...

Here's another read > http://www.healthline.com/health/radial-nerve-dysfunction#Treatment5 I had a related issue, "trigger finger" where the finger bends at the second knuckle and then "snaps" to the closed, or opened, side of the joint.

Re: radial palsy?

You may give this a view for more info. There are not many videos on YouTube which are in English instead of Asian though. At least I could not track many. Not saying this is an absolute for treatment or for accurately explain such, but it is at least a start to evaluate and go from. Your doc would...

Re: Best Ural Stereo system I've seen

So, I am planning on doing something like you have proposed. I found 2 speaker housings for $30 shipped. Once I get a new ural, I will be adding a small audio system. I've always wanted one on a bike. I think the sidecar is a prime candidate. I thought you were just jerking my chain when you posted...

Looks good regardless :) :) :) Sidecar bodies are expensive, that's why we gave Wildhorse the good half of the wrecked sidecar. I've built a cou...
